ASHLAND, Ky. – Are your children adequately protected in your car or truck? According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, more than 90 percent of child safety seats are installed incorrectly.

 
Parents, grandparents, caregivers and others can learn about new Kentucky laws regulating children’s car seats and have their equipment checked for compliance at King’s Daughters child passenger safety seat check April 3 in Ashland.

 
Safety seat checks will be performed from 1 to 5 p.m., at King’s Daughters Family Care Center – Cedar Knoll, 10652 U.S. Route 60. No appointment is needed, but the vehicle, seat and child must be present.

 
“Child safety seats are required by law for infants, toddlers and children up to 7 years old and 4 feet 2 inches,” Rene Clay, community health specialist, said. “Each age group needs a different type of seat, and each seat must be properly installed to protect the child who uses it. KDMC is ready to assist in making sure all child safety seats offer the best protection possible in case of an accident.”
